babies in the dumpster at the end of 
the five days, except for Karen 
Brunstetter, who left hers in her 
locker!!

these babies around for five days, 
never letting them leave their sight. 




EGG DROP 





The physics class had to 
design a landing spot for 
their eggs. They could only 
use tissue paper, toothpicks, 
and elastics for equipment. 
From this they had to devise 
a landing for a 15 foot drop!

We were fortunate enough to have 
Bishop Rueger come to our school 
during National Catholic Schools week. 
All of our schools participated in 
Liturgy and events throughout the week. 
Bishop Rueger made everything special 
by his presence and the fact that he 
gave us a day off made the week even 
more so. 




Typing — Mr. Ward

was alot of fun and learning too.

"WE'RE ALL FRIENDS" 

by Seth Loconto 

Four years gone by. 
Doesn't seem that long. 
But I did my best to write 
Some memories in a song. 
All that wasted time I want back again 
And I'll spend it all with you — all my friends 
We're all friends. 

Some have run to us. 
We have run to some. 
We've all done crazy things. 
That were really dumb. 
But I still have my whole life to spend 
And I thank the Lord for all of my friends 
We're all friends. 

What will become of us? 
Now that we are out of school 
Will you remember me? 
Cause I'll remember you. 

Four years have past but they never will be gone 
All our memories will go on and on and on. 

So lets say so long. 

And not say good-bye. 

As we all depart 

The tears flow from our eyes. 

But I don't want this to be the end 

Of this special love we have between friends 

We're all friends 

We're all friends Forever.
